Tapatalk

I'm hardly ever on my computer. So my activities on the forum are always on my iPhone using the Tapatalk app. It works perfectly fine, put if I try to post a picture and have Tapatalk host it, it's all low quality and kinda horrible looking. Now I'm using Flickr to post image codes. On the up side, the pictures are at a high quality. The down side, when you click on the image, it redirects you to the Flickr site. I like it when I can click an image and just have it full screen without having to be redirected. Any way to do that with Tapatalk? Or just on the iPhone in general?

This isn't Tapatalk or your iPhone, it's the person that posted the picture.

If a person posts a picture on Camaro5 from photobucket, photoshop, flickr, tumblr, etc. on a computer, the picture would just look like a normal copy-and-paste picture, but when you go to look at it on Tapatalk, it will take you to the link of the picture. If the person just copys and pastes a picture, it will load like a normal picture on your iPhone.

I hope this helps.

Yea, I knew that much and I'm not placing blame on the phone or the app. What I meant to say was, when I post a picture myself using Tapatalk, tapping on it redirects me and whoever else because I have to put a image code. Is there a way for me to post a picture without the redirection for people on an iPhone like myself? A simple copy and paste like on a computer that'll just open.

Anyone having trouble using tapatalk with this site for the last few days? I keep getting the message "Failed to connect to the forum..." I've got the most recent version and it works fine for the other forums I'm visit.

I know you aren't. I never post a picture on TapaTalk from another website, but I'm pretty sure I know another way to. Try saving the picture to your iPhone, then load it on to TapaTalk from your saved pictures. Try this and let me know how it works out.

I haven't gotten this message, but I haven't been on TapaTalk in the last couple of days. It's either a glitch with the forum on TapaTalk or the forum in general. Next time it happens, log out of TapaTalk for awhile or reboot your smartphone. Let me know if this helps at all. If not, I'll look into other solutions to your problem.

Yea thats the first method I tried. It works and it shows up without any redirection, but the problem was that it is very low grainy quality. So I started using Flickr. I'm guessing ill just have to wait and see if Tapatalk updates so that it hosts and posts pictures at the same quality you upload them at.

Yeah. I see where you're coming from. Lets just say Tapatalk isn't as good as it can be.

Still happening. I even removed the forum, uninstalled TapaTalk, shut down the phone and pulled the battery, then reinstalled TapaTalk and setup all my forums again. I can get on every other forum except this one. It has got me confused.

I'm thinking it's the forum. Does C5 work when you load it on your smartphone Internet instead of TapaTalk? Also, have you tried to connect to C5 on TapaTalk while using a different WiFi source?

I can get to C5 via the browser on the phone, but I haven't tried using a different source. I'll try that as soon as I can. Thanks!

Still not joy. Even on Wi-Fi it can't connect. Oh well.

I say just stick with your phones browser. You can do more by just going to Camaro5.com. That's what I do.

Downloaded tapatalk on my iPhone.

Hate it.

Just as easy to browse with a normal safari browser.

What is the benefit of tapatalk?

I didn't like it on the iPhone either. The version for my Android seems a little more intuitive. The main benefit is that you can quickly go to the threads you are actively participating in and see nice big screens of the posts. Big is good for old guys like me.

The web browser is fine though.

I just didn't like using the browser all the time and having to zoom in and out to read stuff and hit links. It's just faster to load and navigate for me using Tapatalk. I guess because it's not loading all the graphics and animated avatars and signatures. It's just the text and posted pictures. Wish it played videos though, but I guess that's an iPhone/flash player thing.
